Happy March!

Hello all my dear readers! :)
How is everybody doing out there?! :D

So the third month of 2012 is here, March 2012. Wow, after this one, we will be out of 25% of this year already! :O (Uh! everybody knows it! Man, what's the big deal?) Of course nothing as such, I thought to post something, and since it was the first day of the month, I couldn't think of anything better! :O LOL!

March is the third month of the year in both the Julian and Gregorian calendars. It is one of the seven months which are 31 days long. The name of March comes from ancient Rome, when March was the first month of the year and named Martius after Mars or Ares, the Greek god of war. In Rome, where the climate is Mediterranean, March was the first month of spring, a logical point for the beginning of the year as well as the start of the military campaign season. (Military Campaign, wow! sounds interesting! :D) In Finnish, the month is called maaliskuu(Ah! you should not laugh! >_< Respect the language!), which originates from maallinen kuu, meaning earthy month, because during maaliskuu, earth finally becomes visible under the snow. In Ukrainian, the month is called березень(O_O What's that? O_O), meaning birch tree. Historical names for March include the Saxon Lentmonat, named after the equinox and gradual lengthening of days, and the eventual namesake of Lent. Saxons also called March Rhed-monat or Hreth-monath (deriving from their goddess Rhedam/Hreth), and Angles called it Hyld-monath. The Turkish word Mart is given after the name of Mars the god.

Anyways! As an Indian, and a Hindu, the best thing about march that is most exciting for me is? IT IS HOLI - The festival of colours! :D It is a religious spring festival. There are many amazing things about holi(ah! that gives me another topic to write about! :D Will surely post an article about the festival on the day itself! :D). The festival is generally observed in 2 days, the first being the religious one, and the second being the fun one! hahaha! Colours, water, baloons, sweets, songs, dance! FUN! FUN! FUN!! :D

Oh anyways, I am not really starting to say about it as yet. Let's be a bit patient! :D Till then, good day all, have a great new month!
